Our Vision

We envision a world in which each individual can realize their full potential and fulfill their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. We work in practical ways to provide material, educational and medical support to the less fortunate.

Who We Are

The World Organization for Positive Action (WOPA) was founded in 2006 with the objective of helping improve conditions for families and individuals in need of food and medicine, and in emergency situations. WOPA officially became a 501(c)3 charity in 2009. WOPA members are volunteers who are committed to making the world a better place.

What we do

WOPA was founded to help alleviate the living conditions of needy people around the world. We provide food, medicine and medical attention but our hope is to provide services that can contribute to the strengthening of families. Supporters who share our passion and commitment for defeating poverty make our work possible.

Today we have carried out operations such as feeding poor families, providing medical supplies and medical services in Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, the Republic of Peru and El Salvador as well as in the United States. We have helped families improve their living conditions through construction of latrines and home repairs. WOPA also works to improve educational opportunities by constructing schools and providing scholarships and school supplies to students in the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and the United States.
